Distance-time graphs

For the GCSE course you need to be able to:

Recall and use the equation
(average) speed = distance / time
Recall and use the equation
distance travelled = average speed x time
Analyse distance-time graphs and be able to determine the speed from the gradient of the graph.
Recall some typical speeds encountered in everyday life.
Describe laboratory methods for determining the speeds of objects, for example light gates.
